If you haven’t figured it out by now, Marvel is releasing a whole new line of number one issues and series following the end of Secret Wars. Spider-man, Captain Marvel, and Doctor Strange have already been announced, and now it is time for Spider-Gwen to get some love.

“This book has defied all expectations, mine included, and has continued to thrive and grow,” says series writer Jason Latour, in an interview with Marvel.com. “I can’t tell you how precious of an experience that makes it. Re-launching and being put out there on the front lines as a tent pole kind of title really is a tremendous opportunity to open our doors to everyone again.”


The issue promises to be a great jumping on point for new readers, and a chance for Spider-Gwen fans to find out what is really going on between Gwen Stacy and Peter Parker.

Someone out there has recreated Peter Parker’s Lizard formula. The same formula that ultimately cost him his life and branded Gwen a fugitive. And she won’t let it happen again! But with NYPD Captain Frank Castle and the Kingpin of Crime Matt Murdock both on her tail, that’ll prove easier said than done. Who could be behind all of this? The answers will shock you!

Spider-Gwen #1 is written by Jason Latour with art by Robbi Rodriguez and Rico Renzi.

The first issue arrives in the fall. For those wondering when that is, fall begins on September 23rd and ends on December 21st.

  1. I know I’ll be one of the many thousands that get lost in the crowd on this, but I’m done with Marvel. I’ve been a comic reader since the 70’s and quite simply, miss the good ‘ole days when all a company had to do to increase character interest was to take out one page house ads claiming a new creative team, or “bold new direction’ on a title. They weren’t constantly ending a series and re-launching simply because of a change in the character status.

    When major event’s transpired, like the first Secret Wars, we the reader, got to see the ramifications of that event in the character’s main book WITHOUT the need to end that series and begin it all over. We also didn’t have to sift through tons of cross-over books that had little to NO effect on the same event they were tied to.
    Again, the companies decided to show us any connecting stories/new characters within the pages of the main character books. Novel concept eh?

    I just feel that lately the big two have been the readers instead of really giving us solid stories that we talk about for more than a day or two.

    Guess I’m just too old but come on Marvel (and you as well DC) aren’t you yourselves even getting tired of the constant stops and restarts?
